That is - plain and simple - wrong.

A merge always gets merged into your working copy, i.e. into the
directory you started the merge in. So if you want to merge anything
into tyour branch, you need to check it out somewhere (I guess you'll
already have it checked out somewhere) then run "SVN Merge" on the
directory you checked everything out into.

The from and to fields are for telling svn which revision range of the
*trunk* (in your case) that you want to merge, thus the default option
of using the same URL for both - of course you can use a different URL
if you want to specify a tag instead, but if you choose a trunk and a
branch URL you'll most likely get an empty set of changes between those
two, and it definitely isn't what you want to do...

So you need to specify "HEAD" as your "to" revision and some earlier
revision number as your "from" revision.
